I recently had a battery problem with my notebook, now fixed, but in the process of accessing the boot up options menu a few times, it now display EVERY time the PC starts. The menu I am talking about is the one which says:
F1 System Information
F2 System diagnostics
F7 HP sparekey recovery
F9 Boot menu options
F10 BIOS setup
F11 System recovery
Enter - continue startup
For more information, please go to www.hp.com/go/techcenter/startup
When I press enter the notebook starts normally and everything works fine. However, this menu comes up every time the PC is started and does not time out. Usually it is a problem getting to this menu (because the notebook starts so fast on the SSD), but I have the opposite problem - now it is all working fine I don't want the menu to come up. I've been to the HP startup website and googled and searched and looked for an option to turn off the menu, but I can't find anything.
Can you please tell me how I can hide the display of this menu each time the PC starts?

You were right, it worked. I didn't think I needed a BIOS upgrade as I'd upgraded to F.23 about 2 weeks ago, but there was an F.23 rev A on the HP support downloads, and when I upgraded all now works fine. I searched and searched and couldn't find an option anywhere to remove the startup menu. Seems right that it should be set somewhere in the BIOS (actually UEFI) but I couldn't find an option anywhere. Thanks for the tip.
